In year 6 today, the children got to put their rocket designs to the test! We used bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to launch our rockets. Some of our rockets worked, some of them didn’t. We had a great time!
This afternoon in Redwood, we completed a Science investigation based on flight! We created our own aeroplanes of various sizes. We had to investigate (and predict!) which aeroplanes would travel the furthest. Would it be the largest? Would it be the most streamlined? We made a prediction and went outside to investigate… We really enjoyed this afternoon – please ask us more about it if you see us around school!
Today in Redwood, we wrote a Pobble based on Flight – our Science Week topic! This week’s writer of the week goes to Vienna for producing a detailed and descriptive piece of writing. Well done, Vienna!
Today in year 6, we went on a visit to the local Cathedral. The children have been learning about Christianity this term in RE and in particular, the Easter Story. The children got to partake in different talks with some well-informed adults who work at the Cathedral.
The children learnt about Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Maundy Thursday alongside partaking on a ‘Palm Sunday’ walk around the Cathedral.
The children were very respectful and asked some insightful questions. Well done, year 6! What was your favourite part of the day? Leave comments below!
Year 6 spent their Literacy lesson writing a newspaper report in pairs. They were given a video stimulus of a ‘villain’ stealing from various places around Lawford Mead. The children then enjoyed working with their partner to write their newspaper report. Here is the report voted for in Redwood.
Redwood enjoyed sharing stories with Sycamore class this morning. The children got to read to each other and spend some time talking about their favourite books. They also went on a ‘Where’s Wally?’ hunt around the school.
This week, the writer of the week goes to Tim who has produced a well-punctuated and insightful diary in the style of the character Tom from our class text ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’. A great diary, Tim!
